Dark Void is one of those games that might appear generic on the surface, but once you delve beneath the standard third-person action, you'll find a very different animal. This game sets itself apart by instituting a "vertical" type of gameplay thanks to a jet pack, and the developers really do some interesting things with this concept. Here's a look at what we mean; this Aerobatics Trailer shows off your character's significant mid-air abilities, and it's plenty promising. January is pretty full, but Dark Void might just outpace the competition.
